Ah the tricky thing about love is you have to know you are loved. Meaning you really have to love yourself. Not hype, not because it’s the right thing to do, but because you really mean it. You truly love yourself.
You see unless you understand this and know it beyond a shadow of a doubt, you will settle for things that aren’t in that heart of yours. You can only give a true voice to your heart when you believe you’re worthy of it. ”I love myself therefore, I expect …” you fill in the blank. Loving yourself makes you incredibly powerful, but above all, it is giving love to the most valuable person in your life, you!
When you come to that place, when things that cross your heart that do not resonate with all that is desires, it will speak to you. You’ll get that uncomfortable feeling in the pit of your stomach. You may feel very unsettled. You lose sleep. All of these are knocks from your heart saying, ”Hey pay attention to me! I have something to say.”
Listening to our hearts can be challenging in itself because our hearts will challenge us to go past our comfort zones. It will push you for more than the status quo and when you truly give it a voice, it will say, ”I want more.” When we give our hearts a voice and the permission to speak, we are in turn loving ourselves.
Your heart is your compass to direct you towards what you truly desire. It will reveal to you the depths of yourself and go pass what may be seen by the naked eye. Each of us is given a choice to listen and to trust that. When it reveals what’s inside, that is where your find yourself at a place to determine whether or not you’ll be true to yourself.
In dating, relationships, even singleness, you come to a place where you realize that you Must Be True to You. When we choose to do so, we feel liberated, we feel powerful. When we don’t, we feel inferior, we question our surroundings and ourselves.
Is the ground your standing on feeling shaky? Check your premises. Ask your heart if you’re really listening and make the decision that no matter what you will accept only that which you truly desire.
